Old Navy wants to be less, well, "old". Which is why the trailer is re-launching and re-imaging itself as a younger and hipper (while still affordable) brand with the debut of something called the "Urban Explorer" line. (Did they not say "safari" because that has weird colonialist connotations?) And while Old Navy president Dawn Robertson stepped down this week — I think she might've left too soon. Because the stuff is actually pretty good. Everything is priced under $40 and is a hell of a lot nicer than anything in Sarah Jessica Parker's debut Bitten line for Steve & Barry's. The safari (sorry, "explorer") theme might have been taken too literally (those pieces displayed after the jump), but there are also basics like tanks and jeans that totally do the trick without breaking the bank. My favorite, though, would have to be the shoes: Must have gladiator sandals for under twenty bucks! Select "Urban Explorer" looks reviewed, after the jump.
